Sunday’s Scripture — May 3

Sunday's Scriptures
Sunday’s Scripture. I thank those of you who have commented, messaged me, or sent an e-mail letting me know how you specifically pray for your grandchildren.

One grandmother (with her three daughters) prays every day for her grandchildren, especially the three who are in school. And particularly for protection for each one of them. She reports that this has been a great school year and she attributes this to her family prayer group. Though she didn’t send a specific scripture verse, the Bible is filled with reports of answered prayer!!

As I read her note to me I thought of Psalm 5, David crying out to his God in prayer:

“In the morning, O LORD, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait in expectation… But let all who take refuge in you be glad; let them ever sing for joy. Spread your protection over them, that those who love your name may rejoice in you. For surely, O LORD, you bless the righteous; you surround them with your favor as with a shield.” Psalm 5:3, 11-12.

Do YOU pray for your grandchildren? Please share with me via email, facebook, or a comment here letting me know how…a specific verse? Specific days for specific grandchildren? Do you let them know that you’re praying for them? Do you have a regular time of day?

Have a blessed Sunday.

    I am smiling over the identity of the “anonymous” person who has put her complete trust in God to protect her grandchildren – especially the school aged ones! No matter what we grandparents contribute in terms of generous love, attention, babysitting and “toys, toys, toys :)” NOTHING compares to the gift of the prayers we bestow upon them!
    I am so glad you are spreading this message of the value of prayer. Psalm 5 is beautiful. Two readings at Mass last Sunday mentioned, “ask whatever you want” of God when you are close to him. Sometimes I confess to Our Lord that I wish I were someone who believed without having seen – but that is impossible since I HAVE seen so many direct positive responses to my petitions!
    I pray for my grandchildren every morning as I arise. When they are older I will tell them that I do this.

      Thanks for commenting, Joyce. 🙂 I realized that I forgot to ask whether I could identify the ones sending their prayer routines/verses my way!

      I so agree that prayer is the BEST we can give!! And, yes, how can we say we haven’t seen when His handiwork is all around us?! Add to that His answer to our prayers… yes, we belong to an awesome God who cares for His children as the shepherd cares for his flock.

      Your grandchildren are blessed to have a faithful praying grandmother!
